I've been eating a lot of ramen noodles lately. I'm sure my sodium levels are atrocious. :P



Yesterday, I found a review of Kimono's Townhouse on a real, live webcomic review site. The reviewer was quite generous and gave KT a pretty good review but seemed uncertain how to rate it. The problem was that the author wasn't sure who'd read KT, except maybe some really geeky girls. I've been wondering about this myself, as there's almost 800 of you who've friended KT, and you can't all be geeky girls. Actually, I know for a fact that several of you are geeky guys. So let's settle this with a quick poll! It won't take but two seconds of your time. ^_^

Poll #1050332 Quick demographic poll!

Are you male or female?

Male
27(6.6%)
Female
375(91.9%)
All of the above
5(1.2%)
None of the above
1(0.2%)

And what drew you to KT?

I collect ponies.
38(9.3%)
I'm a geek.
40(9.8%)
I just like the stories.
49(12.0%)
I'm still trying to figure that out, myself.
14(3.4%)
Some other random reason. (Please elaborate!)
20(4.9%)


Oh, and in case you're curious, KT scored a 7.5 out of 10 in the review. Wahoo!

I joined this community forever ago and I've failed to thank you for creating somethin cute that makes me smile. I'm female and I read KT because it brightens my day... besides, when I was a kid my neighbor used to collect the ponies.

Thanks! :D That's always been my aim. I never intended KT to be really funny. I just want people to smile and maybe nod knowingly when they read it. If I get a laugh, that's good, too. But I'm happy to know I've made someone smile. ^_^

I used to collect the ponies, and I've always had a soft spot for miniatures. Aside from the minies, the comic makes me laugh and I'm also curious about the photograph/comic aspect of it. And the dollhouse-like quality. >___> I've always wanted a dollhouse. <3 Keep up the good work!

Heya, I joined because 1. i am a horse-nut and it's near impossible to find horsey comics 2. I'm a comic nut 3. your use of the props, angles, and attention to details are phenomenal! That alone gives me as much pleasure as the actual content of the strip 4. it brightens up my week and gives me a chuckle. I'm female, 29yrs old, from Australia. :-)

Hee! Polls xD
I love ponies. That's probably the best reason why I'm here.

I also joined because you were my friend and it was a project of yours; I like to support my friends' projects as long as they interest me as well (being a somewhat geeky girl who collects ponies).

Ain't nothin wrong with the ramen-and-koolaid diet until you get back on your hooves, Kimono!

There's also nothing wrong with generic soda...well, certain kinds, anyway.

Kris has this huge fear of Dr. Thunder, and is convinced it is brewed in Hell by the devil himself. He doesn't mind generics, as long as I don't touch his soda, cereal or Oreos.

Some other random reason...
I came across Kimono's Townhouse when it was spotlighted.

The reason I joined up and read it eagerly every week is that it's a brilliant combination of humour, intelligence, cultural referencing* and impressive hard work!





* Did I mention I'm a Cultural Studies thesis student? I'm also female and 31, if that's of interest to you in your "Who the heck is reading me?" query. :)

Re: Some other random reason...
Neat! It sounds like you and I have a lot in common. I went to grad school to study history, although I burned out while I was trying to write my thesis. I love pop culture, though, and I consider it future history. ^_^

I actually saw some people with icons for it and went hunting because they looked cute. And viola! I came upon this spectacular pony orgy that left with me with giggles and pony fuzzies. All in the same day. Good show.

hehe.

So many reasons..... lol

I saw cute icons.... yay... and then I found a link, now I am hooked. I come to LJ everyday hoping there is new KT, even though I know its only once a week!

As the token male here, I have to say that I love cute stuff. My wife & cats are absurdly cute. The anime & manga we have is absurdly cute. I am always taking pictures of animals. I bore my friends with endless stories about my cats. You get the idea...

I love toys and MLP was my first fandom when I was a kid, so they hold a special place in my heart <3

I am getting back into ponies, and my sister found you while searching for comics she wanted to read. She knew I was interested in all things MLP and sent me your link. I read the comic on the front page, went back to read from comic #1, and I have been hooked ever since. I can't wait for the next week to come when I can see what Kimono and Minty are up to. Oh and for your demographics, I am a 29 year old geek girl who does photostories with dolls and gets the who picture comic thing. ;-)
